Community Engaged Courses

Courses with Section Numbers designated as “E” indicate that the course has a required community engagement component. These courses are designated as an “E” in order to help students make informed decisions about the courses that they select.

The “E” courses have received this designation by fitting with the following criteria.

  • Criterion 1: Integrated Learning: The engagement activity(s) and the course content/learning objectives complement each other. The learning experience involves interactive partnership with community through students working directly with community members, organizations, and/or issues.
  • Criterion 2: Identified Community Issues and/or Needs: The engagement activity(s) implemented within the course correlates to a community need or issue – it is imperative that the community needs are identified by or in collaboration with the community partner.
  • Criterion 3: Reflection: Students reflect, through written work or other forms of evaluation, on the application of the engagement activity(s) as they relate to the course content.
  • Criterion 4: Course Pedagogies: Course utilizes an engaged pedagogy such as: Issue/Problem/ Policy-Based Learning, Service-Learning or Community-Based Learning, Action Research or Community-Based Research, Public Scholarship.
